14 November 1955
Thank you for your letter of the 9th. I should like to stay in Europe next year but not here.
There would be very little chance for me to stay with Kendrew; he is tired of me and I would like
to branch out. I could go to the R.I. with Bragg. I am interested in bacterial flagella and in
viruses. Don Kasper has obtained photographs of Bushy Stunt Virus showing a 5 fold axis & a 3
fold axis point group 532 consequently. Perhaps I should go to Stockholm, Weibull will be there
& he can prepare flagella, (you met him in Upsalla, short & stocky in the room beneath Tiselius),
Sjstrand takes the world's best thin section electron micrographs & Theorell. I think that I
should be able to get a fellowship if I have a suitable experiment I wish to do.
I shall modify your account. I owe you $15 from the summer's loan, which should be
subtracted from your account. I was going to trade the $15 for the phone call by forgetting both
& pay you for the books, but I shall pay the $15 instead.
Please ring up M. Delbrück & ask him about an RNA structure by Rundle in Iowa. M.
Delbrück has written Alex a letter about it. It is a beautiful practical joke and worked extremely
well. Francis (Crick) & Alex were very worried & rang Washington D.C. (Jack Dunitz) to find
out about it.
PS. I shall apply for a NSF & others.
- Letter from Professor Arthur C. Cope, Chemistry Dept., MIT, to LP RE: Dr. David P. Shoemaker will be considered this year for promotion to the rank of Associate Professor at MIT. Requests LP's opinion of Shoemaker's qualifications. Also requesting opinions from Dr. Verner Schomaker and Dr. R. B. Corey. [Filed under LP Correspondence: (S: Individual Correspondence.

- Letter from Professor Joseph B. Platt, Physics Dept., University of Rochester, to LP RE: Thanks LP for his gracious note on the crystal structure of the micas. Their most immediate interest was to find out that wavelength that LP used and so they are grateful for this information. They can probably make their own guess on an appropriate Debye temperature. Now they will make their own measurements on the mosaic crystal coefficients for the specimens of mica that they will be using.

- Letter from Robert W. McKinney, Corresponding Secretary, Phi Lambda Upsilon, Chemistry Dept., University of Kansas, to LP RE: May 7 would be satisfactory for LP's lecture. Another date could also be arranged. Wonders if LP has a preference regarding the subject or if they can choose between several possible subjects.
